This is an amazing concealer, i use it on the lids too as an eyeshadow base. Completely neutralizes any redness.
I'm not so sure if this is my HG for concealers. I went to my local MAC store and one of the ladies was very nice and showed me what concealer would cover my blemishes and under eye circles. I'm the shade NC20 for foundation/powder so she gave me the Select Moisturecover concealer in NC15. It does well on blemishes but not on my under eye circles. It has light to medium coverage. It does cover my bags under my eyes but I can still see them. I will buy this again for blemishes but not for my under eye circles.
Im not too sure about this concealer, its got good coverage compared to alot of concealers i have already tried as they tend to be quite sheer which i think is useless. i have quite dark circles most of the time, this concealer helps but doesnt completely get rid of them. if you try to build it up it looks quite cakey and horrible. i think for it to look flawless it would have to be on someone with normal skin condition not dry nor oily. its also really easy to blend out doesnt dry up fast or anything. as for staying powder, it does last me around half a day but my main problem with it is that it creases sooo much. its the worst it looks ridiculous. but ive been using a primer underneath and it has helped with that only when i use the tiniest bit of concealer though, its an extra step everyday that i dont want to take really. another good thing about this is that it lasts you a surprisingly long time, it looks so small i expected to run out so quickly. overall this product is equally good and bad i guess. i would buy this product again but im going to try bobbi brown concealers soon too as ive heard quite good reviews about it.
This rocks. Smooth, creamy, water based, covers well, isn't cakey, or thick. YES! I've found my new HG of concealers! This goes lovely with my MAC Select SPF 15 foundation, then Prep & Prime translucent powder over top. LOVELY!
I'm basing my review on MAC's claims for this concealer. The following description is from their website: "A luxuriously blendable moisturizing concealer in a tube with built-in doe-foot applicator. Goes on exactly where you want it: blends in for a natural satin-smooth ultra-moisturized finish. Layers up for added coverage. Line-softening, skin-perfecting: The Pros’ “select” for under-eyes and delicate skin. Wide shade range provides soft, natural camouflage."
If I were rating it based on coverage for my dark eye circles, I'd give it a 3 star rating. Since MAC does not market this as a heavy duty concealer, I give it a 5 based on its blendability, moisturizing properties & natural finish. I tried to use this on its own, but its too sheer for my dark circles. I have an annoying problem with under eye cakiness and I find this works well as a FINAL step to my concealer application. I usually put this on after setting powder to rid of any cakiness and it makes my under eye area look much more natural. I haven't found anything else that gives the same natural effect - not even YSL's Touche Eclat. For this reason, I'll rate it a 5.
I love this concealer!!! Its perfect for my dry skin although it is slightly to orange for my skin tone and is only good when i do not have big circles under my eyes. However, it is really easy to blend and its really good for on the go.
I love this concealer, the consistency is so moisturizing. I love the applicator, and the packaging, easy to carry with you in your purse. For those of you with dry skin, this is perfect. It blends in perfectly and doesnt cake under the eyes where there might be fine lines. The lasting power is decent, I mean I wear it for a good 8 hours and I still see it ther, after about 8 hours I think even if you set it, it will start to fade. Still good enough :)
I use this during the wintertime (I use MAC's Select Cover-Up during the Summertime) and it's moisturizing without being too thick and cakey. It blends and covers dark, under-eye circles well without creasing into the skin around my eyes. I'm also impressed with how this covers and conceals blemishes, especially when I use it with a concealer brush. This is the only concealer I've every tried that covers blemishes on my face without flaking!
This is my favourite undereye concealer at the moment. I just use 3 small dots and blend out with my finger. Covers my undereye circles very well, and I do struggle with dark circles. It's very moisturizing and blends well, and I can build the coverage if I find I haven't applied enough (although I don't usually have that problem because it covers well). I like the applicator too, and it's easy to tell when I am running low because of the see-through packaging.
I think liquid concealers are definately the best for the under eye area, since this area needs moisture or it can look cakey. I have repurchased and would do so again.
PROS: Great at concealing blemishes, on the cheaper side of MAC products, and lasts a long time
CONS: Packaging (I wish it came in a squeeze-tube), smell (scent similar to mascara)
For me, there isn't much to say about this product other than that it does the job and isn't outrageously expensive. The product has last me a while, which was surprisingly considering it comes in such a small package. It smells a bit, but the scent does go away after a few minutes.
